91.48% for Windows
1.77% for Linux
4.58% for Mac
is very similar to the number from the site I linked. Actually the Linux
numbers are better, about double, from the site I Linked.

Statistics Are Often Misleading
You cannot - as a web developer - rely only on statistics. Statistics
can often be misleading.
Global averages may not always be relevant to your web site. Different
sites attract different audiences. Some web sites attract professional
developers using professional hardware, while other sites attract
hobbyists using old low spec computers.
